  1. bl0wb4ck scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Solid beginner. Sweet caramel, some vanilla and a light light fruitiness. Easy drinking without corners and edges.

  2. zesu101 scored this whisky 75 points Newbie

    Nose not very volatile, sweet and vanilla, and a moment later it undergoes a subtle but very distinct transformation becoming slightly vegetal and raisiny. Finish with flavors of dark chocolate and clearly emerging vanilla with a slight pepperiness at the end. I like it

  3. ZLako scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    My bottled was bottled in 2022.01.13 just for reference.

    As strange as it might get I have never yet tasted "The Original" Glenmorangie. Only had the Nectar D'Or, Quinta Ruban and the 18 years old. Was time I got a bottle and tasted it. 34 EUR not bad not terrible.

    N: Intense sweetness. Vanilla and coconut. Peaches and toffee coming through. Then getting some nice oak notes with fresh fruits and citrus peel. Green apples and nuts. This is a great and full nose for 40% and 10 years. (86)

    P: Pears, green apples and vanilla. A pinch of black pepper coming. Coconut and some cinnamon. Mouth coating and full. Honey with peaches and malt notes. This is great. (88)

    F: I'd say long because the aftertaste lingers around for quite long. Sweet and fruity with a hint of oak and pepper. (86)

    I am very happy with the quality of this whisky. Will keep around a bottle.

    86 / 88 / 86 = 86.6667 --> 87 pts / 100

    - an average single malt
    - good beginner malt (uncomplicated & pleasant)
    - one of the slightly weaker 10 year standard bottlings
    on the market
    - still seems relatively "immature" for the 10-year-old
    - there are much better ones on the market
    - tends to be too expensive at €30-35 for the quality shown
    • Nose
      fruity, toffee, subtle, mild, gentle, nutty direction
    • Taste
      initially sweet and mild, then a clear alcohol note, some oak, slightly nutty, vanilla, monotonous

  27. CellarToberi scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    Matured in 1-st and 2-nd fill ex-bourbon casks. Chill-filtered, coloured. Thick primary legs, slowly forming into thinner straight ones. Slowly forming slow medium size straight secondary legs. Droplets. A drop of water enhances the mellowness and maltiness. A generic highlander: mellow, delicate. Characterful whisky, revealing the character of the distillery.
    • Nose
      Floral: hay, heather, lemongrass, honey, fragrant. Fruity: fresh apple and citrus: orange. Cereal: malt, barley sugar, dusty notes. Spicy: pepper, vanilla, baking spices: cinnamon, clove. A hint of mint on the cold nose. Sweet: caramel, honey, orange chocolate notes. Woody: toasted and charred oak, spices from ex-bourbon casks. Nutty: almond, hazelnut. Earthy: slight sharp notes. Slight herbal notes: leaves, grass, straw. A very light note of smoke: Highland peat. On subsequent nosing: oily, creamy notes. Rich: delicate, fresh, crisp, clean. Full body.
    • Taste
      Thick nutty vanilla, honey and toffee on the arrival, develops fresh fruits: apple, pear, peach, quince, and citrus fruits: tangerine. Pleasantly salty on the midpalate: salted caramel. Mouthcoating. Spicy: pepper. Woody: oak on the back-palate. Nutty. Floral. Long crisp development.
    • Finish
      Long: Sweet: caramel, vanilla, honey. Woody: oaky spiciness. Nutty, fruity. Spicy: pepper, clove. Satisfying.

    RATING: 82pts – |80 – 82 (B-) → Okay| — No major flaws, worth tasting.

  29. Justinpost scored this whisky 75 points Newbie

    I think it's a bit flat. Sure, there are notes of this and that but in general there's not much too it. Of course, it's most likely due to my very limited taste pallet. But you have to drink what you like and taste, so I would need bolder flavors.

    Classic whisky profile: superficially honey, a little vanilla and a touch of malt. Due to the 40% relatively pleasant but unfortunately too boring.
    Length: 3/10

    Certainly well suited for the entry into the Scottish whisky world, but too boring for the experienced connoisseur.

    Grade: 3+

  35. The_Osprey scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Glenmorangie 10. Rating from Dec 2018. Aroma is honeycomb, vanilla and toffee. Taste - very smooth malt, rounded and boozy, vanilla wafers, buttery vanilla oak with a salty-spicy-woody finish. A smooth and basic crowd pleaser. Perfectly fine - solid but generic. 3.1/74

    Notes from 5/12/14:

    This is the best Glenmorangie of the entry level releases. I'm not so much a fan of the finishes.

    Nose: Nice range. Fruity with honeydew, fresh apples, lilacs, candy, perfume, biscuits, baked apples, honey, a nice maltiness. Akin to a nice Irish.
    Palate: Drier, well-balanced and integrated. Crackers and spice.
    Finish: Brut Champagne (dry and kind of yeasty), malt. Not terribly complex.

  43. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Thanks to the nice bottle shape, tasteful label, and often free glasses included in the gift pack at same price, you are tricked to believe this juice is better than, e.g. Glenlivet or Glenfiddich 12. It is not. Pretty generic entry malt without off notes, but not as fruity, floral and smooth as you might think. The older (minus the new Nectar d'Or) cask finish versions are a clear step up in quality.

    A strong contender for ideal whisky for beginners, like so many of us, Glenmorangie was one of my first-contact malts. Amazingly, this is my first ‘proper’ GlenMo 10 review.

    BOTTLE #1
    C: It’s been a few years since I had the GlenMo 10, but my appetite for it hasn’t wavered, and I’m a sucker for these gentile malt styles [Tomintoul, Glencadam, Balblair,…]. I absolutely caned this bottle, not even filing it. Staying consistent year on year, it noses as a lovely fluffy honeyed malt with pear drops and pineapples, a youthful style that was typical of new distilleries before STR became so prevalent, a style GlenMo has nurtured and nailed. Faultless in its class, a world without Glenmorangie 10 is a loss indeed.

    At £26 [one of the best BFYB going right now, discuss], I went and bought another as a daily drinker.

    TAKE 2

    N: No need to dig too far when we know its a fairly shallow affair. Enjoy top notes then of flour-covered bread-flour-battered apple & pear [drop] fruits with the emphasis on the flour. From this fluffy floured fruitiness with a touch of vanilla custard, I frequently pick up shades of Mackmyra. Was GlenMo or Balblair perhaps an influence for this Swedish distillery, or is the profile [particularly of the Bruks] just a coincidence? On cue, Angela D’Orazio tells us [at TBWC’s World Whisky Summit], that Mackmyra decided not to follow the Scottish model from the beginning.

    T: A lightly-floured waxy < chalky white wine-like [Cox] apple skin-tannic cider/calvados chew, though it doesn’t hang around.

    F: A soft-fresh sharpness cuts into the travel, finishing on chalky green barley. What a touch of underlying peat-malt wouldn’t add to this, my word! How about a [mild] peat week just occasionally LVMH? [#missingatrick]. Whilst we wait, blend in some soft peated whisky for yourself [Springbank for example which I had to hand], for the [somewhat] desired result.

    C: As vital for whisky enthusiasts as neon socks and Puma bags were for many kids in the 1980s, the Original 10yo is an incredibly competent, very safe go-to whisky, though, despite its solid presence, I’ve always a feeling that there should/could be more. Whilst Glenmorangie’s excellent Quarter Century bottling remains the best GlenMo I’ve had, I’ve not yet had an absolute belter. As an entry-level single malt, however, the 10yo is an ideal place to start and/or accompany one’s whisky journey.

    • Nose
      Restrained, light lowland character. Light fresh, unripe fruits. A hint of grassiness, lemon, unrioe banana, green apple, slight creaminess
    • Taste
      Creamy, lightly oaky. Almost no arrival, and a very short development, into a medium/short finish. Custardy, light vanilla

    Color: light gold (there is a dye).
    Body: normal, not very liquid.
    Nose: Fresh, bright, slightly harsh. Yellow sweet ripe apples, just a little bit of honey, orange and grapefruit, peach, dried apricots, a little caramel, almonds, yellow plums, banana, butter, green pepper, freshly cut grass, paraffin and, well, a lot of vanilla (the most "vanilla" whisky of those I've tried).
    Palate: Starts as a moderately sweet fruity vanilla cocktail (yellow apples and pears, apricot and peach can be noted here) with a creamy structure, which is then washed away by a bitter wave of spices. Everything in moderation, not too intense, but delicate.
    Finish: apple seeds, pepper, honey, citrus fruits, peach.
    Summarizing, we can say that this sample will surpass many vaunted Spaisades (with the possible exception of only two Balvenie) in terms of its lightness, delicacy and unobtrusiveness and can be recommended for those who begin to dive into the world of molts, as well as for girls who do not tolerate strong alcohol.

    There must be some batch variation here judging by the scores, I also think some people are too harsh on Glenmorangie 10 year, it is almost fashionable to knock its quality these days, I have got this at 88 points before now and having some from a new bottle yeah its not earth shattering but it does the basics very well, and it is balanced and for £30 much better quality than some of the manufactured rubbish NAS kicking around now.
    I still like this, a great session malt and I always enjoy it and sod it on the strength of the latest bottles 85.86 points for this one, if it had more depth of profile I would score it higher.
    Drinking whisky is all about enjoyment and I always enjoy this.

    Light, accessible and rather undemanding - that's probably the best way to describe Glenmorangie's 10-year-old entry-level Single Malt. Matured exclusively in ex-bourbon casks, the nose is fresh and clean with unripe, sour fruits (green apples and grapes), vanilla cream and honey. With water, some herbal/minty notes start to emerge. On the palate, it arrives spirity and aromatic with citrus fruits, pears and nutmeg, turning more dry and bitter in the development. The finish is of medium length, nutty and mildly spicy. Solid average but nothing special.

      Floral and fruity. grape juice, bitter vanilla, then a strong creamy malty flavor unfolds and takes center place. Slightly oaky already. Texture rapidly vanishes with saliva, wish the proof was higher ...

      Fresh green apples and that classic acid-bitter combo that seems to be common to most entry-level malt-forward options like this one. Walnuts. Not that short, but doesn't bring anything more to the table really.

    This Glenmorangie has a more complex taste than the first scent makes you suspect. At first he does not come across as a very interesting whisky, but that feeling immediately disappears with the complex taste he has.
    • Nose
      Gentle scents of fruit (gooseberries and peaches), light floral, clear apple tones and vanilla custard. Has a nice balance of sweet and more complex tones.
    • Taste
      He has a pleasant fresh taste of fruit juices, crème brulée and soft oak tones. Soft and complex floral notes. It is medium sweet and has a soft round mouth feel.
    • Finish
      It has a fairly short aftertaste with aromas of sweet vanilla and honey, lots of citrus fruit and bitter orange and light notes of hazelnuts.

    For me, the "bourbon" among Scotch whiskys. By that I mean that this whisky - typical for Glenmorangie - is very creamy and sweet, and thus does not correspond to the characterful Scotch. Easy to drink and another good standard, where the price / performance ratio fits.

    It is a good starter if you are new in whisky as it is cheap (25€). For myself I rather invest more :-)
    • Nose

    • Taste

    • Finish
      a bit of oak & fruits but also a bit metallic. Nevertheless it remains positive.

    Not a classic bang for your buck, but a good one to have as a starter. 
    • Nose
      Immediately sweet oranges, few lemon notes in the beginning. Extra sugary fruitpunch (peach) with a drop of water. Then silky almonds and vanilla-oil. Fresh spirit with a sweet honey, slightly woody coating. Lovely to nose on for a while. Development, when alcohol fades away, brings more "substance", if that makes sense talking about aroma.
    • Taste
      Warm for a 40% ABV. Sweet-bitter touch. Elegant.
    • Finish
      Medium to short, a bit dry. Some dark chocolate notes and mint.

    I might be a little bias on this one, as it was the first bottle of single malt I bought for myself, so it will always hold a special place.
    I can still smell the peachy, flowery vanilla scent every time I see the bottle.
    But to make it a little more objective, for the price is costs it is an excellent whisky to introduce someone into the wonderful world of whisky and a great everyday dram. I find it especially good as an aperitif whisky right before a well cooked meal.

    After opening the bottle despite the only 40% both smell and taste strongly dominated by alcohol with strong sprittiger touch. But this disappears with sinking bottle status and gives way to the described floral-fruity mildness which should make the malt interesting especially for beginners.

    My first two glasses were a bit more harsh / less subtle, but after that it appears to have settled and it really is a very smooth dram. Although at times it might be a bit too subtle for me. Still very nice, especially concidering the price, but certainly not my favourite in this price range.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, fruity apple, light citrus and slightly oaky. After having had some air I got a bit of a floral note and a hint of anise when I inhaled longer.
    • Taste
      Very light, a bit fruity and vanilla sweet, with herbal notes. I seem to be getting a light pepper taste near the end.
    • Finish
      At first it seems to taste like cinnamon, but this fades fast and afterwards there is a bitter aftertaste that lasts longer, but not very memorable on the whole.

    Tasting Notes and Comments by Glenmorangie;

    Aroma: The scent of citrus and ripening peaches is softened by the aroma of vanilla.

    Taste: First, vanilla is detected on the tongue before it ripples along the palate bringing a burst of flowery fruitiness.

    Finish: About a minute after tasting, you are left with a clean and salving aftertaste with hints of orange and peach.
    The original expression of our elegant, floral spirit and the real backbone of the Glenmorangie range. A ten-year-old single malt, Glenmorangie Original is produced by marrying the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland's tallest stills, with first and second fill American white oak casks.It is here, maturing for ten long years in a range of ex-bourbon casks such as our famous slow-grown and air-dried 'designer casks' from Missouri, that our raw spirit develops a perfect balance between sweetness and complexity. Resulting in a mature spirit that is soft, mellow and creamy. Perfect for enjoying at any time.

    A typical Highlander. The sweetness and floral flavours make it very accessible.
    • Nose
      Honey and heather flowers take the lead. Citrus and vanilla are also present. A very sweet and accessible dram. Adding water rewards you with peaches, ripe grapes and a bit of crème brulée.
    • Taste
      Sweetness of honey, vanilla and floral accents. This reminds me of violets. Near the end I'm getting something nutty. Perhaps almonds. Water strengthens the floral and nutty flavours. There's also some lemon zest.
    • Finish
      Quite short with a nutty after-taste. Like putting an almond immersed in honey in your mouth.

    A classic in every way, Glenmorangie's standard expression is one to remember. 
    • Nose
      A load of aromas coming through here; There's vanilla sweetness, field flowers, big malt, oak, chocolate, fresh young fruit. Great stuff.
    • Taste
      Again the vanilla is the first thing I get. An oaky prickle now, heavy malt, floral notes and now some spice as well. The fruits are juicy and fresh, there's light chocolate again and maybe even a very faint coffee note. 
    • Finish
      Medium in length, but enjoyable nonetheless. The malt is the most obvious now, after that comes the vanilla, then the fruits, spices, oak and chocolate. The end is sweet, not bitter.

    There's no real difference between this and the old ten other than the
    way in which the oak comes through less strongly here and in the
    slightly darker colour. I just had a wee swig of the old ten as a
    control and there is no doubt that it has a lot more wood spice. Is
    this good or bad? Well it's just different. The new dram is fresher
    and probably works better on a summer night and not so well in winter.
    Still good.
    • Nose
      seems less malty and more floral than the old ten but the basic characteristics are the same.
    • Taste
      And on the palate its similar too, but there is less wood. I wonder if
      there is a difference in the wood management showing up here.
      Certainly the malt has more room to work, but it is lighter without the
      oak spice.
    • Finish
      Now the wood comes through. But it's still slower and lighter than it
      was in the old expression. There is more space for vanilla notes and
      the wood somehow seems younger and cleaner and dusted with icing sugar.

    How many €
    • Nose
      Nose: Well balanced, delicate, relatively fruity (citrus, apple) and malty
    • Taste
      Palate: Linear, again a nice balance, even more on citrus, a hint of vanilla too.
    • Finish
      Finale: Quite long in terms of degree (40%), spicy, lemony, honey cake.

    LVHM distributes as a commodity a great whisky, which retains its quality over the nose, the key to the finish. Tip: upper room temperature opens this drop and brings it to full development!
    • Nose
      wonderful blend of sour malt and sweet vanilla smell, rounded off by fruits (sultanas) and honey
    • Taste
      pretty broad and aromatic
    • Finish
      corresponds to the nose, slightly spicy (but still pleasant), leaves a pleasant warmth on the palate

    The 40% isn't enough, I want 43-46%. Right now it's lame..
    • Nose
      Fresh. Vanilla, toffee and exotic fruits.
    • Taste
      Honey, vanilla and caramel.
    • Finish
      Little too short finish, but it's alright.
